The game is clever, however I wouldn't really call it a mind-numbing scary thriller. It's actually much more funny than scary, plenty of lollable moments (like with the cookie and the monkey).
With that being said, I gotta say that the controls are a tad bit difficult, at least from my angle. To click and hold using the mouse and or keyboard is a tad bit tedious, let alone to toss the ball. I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to accurately toss the ball. I couldn't progress any further than the [spoiler] play with the monkey [/spoiler] part, due to me not being able to toss the ball.
If you're gunna make this a full fledge game, it would be very helpful if controller support was released, of which would solve this indefinately.
Also, without a pause feature means even if I have to do something else (run to answer door, restroom, ect.) makes things inconvenient.
Pros: Entertaining, good voice acting, interesting
Cons: Considered a scary psycological terror, moreso a funny charming time passer
without a health meter or any actual danger this is simply a walking simulator with cool effects, controls can be hindering, plot is too linear.
Somethings to add on would be a better way to have flexible controls, make the space button the throw button.
You should incorporate some morality choices, my suggestion is to, not exactly make like "Saw-styled" choices, but moreso choices that are simple, but in the plot are more harder than it looks---Like obeying a command could hurt somebody else, or disobeying could be helpful, but we risk punishment. This leaves players to struggle to predict which shennanigan the japanese voice will subject them to next, whether we'll get a mind numbing choice that affects others, or whether it'll be a random command that just doesn't make sense.
Maybe add a bit of Alicec in Wonderland styled hallucinations that keep us on our toes, to have us slowly struggle to know real from reality.
Anyway, this is Gregory Thomas, Everybody's Favorite Uncle, author of the science fiction dystopian novel Chronologue, sharing thoughts. ^~^
